This our little baby, who we named Noah.
Arielle and I found him while we were coming home from class. When we found him, we realized that he was too young to be going around by himself. We just watched him for couple minutes to see if his mother was coming to pick him up, but she never came. Just as most squirrels they would probably run away if a human approached them, but rather than running away Noah greeted us and came close to us or maybe asked for our help. We picked him up and he fell asleep.
We kept him for couple weeks and took care of him. Of course we did our research about how to take a baby squirrel.

I’ve noticed that he was growing up faster than I expected. His body hair got thicker, his tail got bigger, he can crawl and move faster. Noah and I became good friends. He might see me as his father because when I tried to release him outside he would just run back to me and crawl back to my shoulder. So as we kept him a little while we did things together a lot. We even eat together and watch TV!
Right now he’s in the rehabilitation center. I miss him already. It feels like there’s something missing in my life after we gave him away. I hope to see him one day again.
I wonder if he’ll still remember me and in the future.
